Union Pacific, The Milwaukee Road
And Spokane International might have been the last
Rail lines and bridges to access Spokane --
What came to be called, "the high bridge"
Following the north bank of the Spokane River
Enormous I-beams riveted together
High and surmounting the Monroe Street bridge --
No one could have known the line would not survive
Only Great Northern's clock tower remains --
